Seen in Italy: My “Obama Mama”

Although it is Election Night, since I am just back from Italy, I’m by the TV trying to get work done (rather than out watching the results) but I just keep surfing the Internet for election news. So I thought I would post about Italians, American politics and my mama!

My mother was never incredibly political but she’s just crazy about Barack Obama and insisted on wearing either her Obama button or Obama baseball hat (that just screamed “American” – an Italian woman would never wear a baseball cap) throughout our Italy trip the last two weeks. The hat in particular started conversations EVERYWHERE in Italy and it turns out every Italian who commented was crazy for Obama too!
